Their Glorious Summer

[Article] The summer of 1981 was indeed a fateful one for several young men who played collegiate summer ball in the Valley Baseball League (VBL) in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. For a trio of players on the New Market Rebels, it was the beginning of a journey that would see them enjoy lengthy major league careers. For three players on the Winchester Royals, Fate had seemingly propped open the door to legitimate dreams of future seasons in the big league sun as well, but 1981 would be the pinnacle of their baseball glory. It was a summer in which the team with Dennis Clow and Steve Peruso and Clay Daniel bested the team with Tom Browning and John Kruk and Dan Pasqua. Clow, Peruso, and Daniel together totaled 11 minor league seasons. Browning, Kruk, and Pasqua each played in the majors for 10 years or more.

Few would have predicted the degree of big league success for the Rebel trio. Browning was almost not allowed to return to the team, Pasqua was briefly dismissed from the team, and John Kruk, well "Johnny" did not fare well when he came up against a broom-stick wielding grandma after he accidentally spit tobacco juice on her carpet.

It was the Winchester Royals, founded by Keith Lupton who would go on to be named the executive of the year three times in three different minor leagues, who were the superior team. Their determination, their ability to stage improbable comebacks, and most of all their talent made the 1981 Winchester Royals one of the great summer league teams ever assembled.

Set as it was against the backdrop of the 1981 major league players' strike, the story of the battle for the President's Cup between the Rebels and the Royals epitomizes that mix of glory and poignancy that produces such passion in those who love the game.

Eli Manning, the 2007 Patriots, and Rationalization: A Short Work of Fiction

Precious few Patriots' fans accepted the cataclysmic upset their team endured in Super Bowl 42, when New England's glorious 18-0 season became a painful 18-1 disappointment. In this short story, a college senior struggles to understand why his beloved Patriots fell to Eli Manning. And he struggles even more to understand why his current crush sees anything in the sixth-year senior he dismissively calls "Clarinet Man." His sister, who would be equally at ease among the Rockettes or at a reconvening of the Algonquin Round Table, encourages him to look at things less rigidly, but inclinations and mental habits are difficult to break. When what you want, what you believe, and what you think you can get all overlap, it's disconcerting to wrestle with contradicting possibilities.

Subway Series

A lifelong New York Mets fan chases the dream of attending Game 1 of the 2000 World Series at Yankee Stadium only to see it morph into the ultimate Flushing nightmare

Writer Richard Daub has been a Met fan since the age of seven when in July 1980 he attended a doubleheader at Shea Stadium that featured the lowly Mets against the St. Louis Cardinals. Between games, a charity softball game was played by the New York Playboy Bunnies and the Bayside Federal Savings Bank team. This day was the starting point of a two-decade journey that led Mr. Daub from one of the lowest points in the history of the franchise to the pinnacle of winning it all in 1986, and finally back to the World Series in 2000 to face the hated crosstown rival New York Yankees.

Game 1 of the 2000 World Series was scheduled to be played at Yankee Stadium, where Mr. Daub had never attended a baseball game. This was the dream scenario, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of seeing his team play a World Series game in the most historic Stadium in the history of baseball. He spent $600 to sit 500 feet from home plate in the "Death Valley" section of the Yankee Stadium bleachers and recorded the entire experience of riding the subways from Penn Station in Manhattan to 161st Street and River Avenue in the Bronx.

Keeping a low profile to avoid the ridicule of Yankee fans, Mr. Daub captures every moment in vivid detail, including: Billy Joel's inebriated rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner"; an inflatable cow landing on Lou Gehrig's monument; a drunken heckler going too far in berating Met reliever John Franco in the bullpen; and a very large man falling onto his lap and pinning his legs to the Yankee Stadium bleachers. At the end of what turned out to be the longest time-wise game in the history of the World Series, the blown opportunities by the Mets to win that game turned the ultimate baseball dream into the worst loss Mr. Daub ever had to endure as a Met fan.
